Alumni Weekend 2016: MAY 6 & 7

March 15, 2016

Celebrate being a Dragon at Alumni Weekend 2016, when today’s campus welcomes thousands of alumni back to share memories, fun, food and more. Whether you come for one event or the whole packed weekend, you’ll leave inspired and proud to call Drexel home!

2016 marks a milestone year for classes ending in 1 or 6, especially Hahnemann and Woman’s Medical College classes of 1966 who will be inducted into the Golden Dragon Society and the class of 1991 who will be inducted into the Silver Dragon Society.

  • If you graduated in 1966 or earlier, if you attended the Drexel Institute, if you remember every Pi Kapp Show, and if you spent noisy nights at The Jailhouse bar on Market Street, then it's time to come back to campus to revisit old haunts, meet with friends, and draw fresh inspiration from today's Drexel. Drexel has a very special welcome for you this Alumni Weekend, including the exclusive Golden Dragons cocktail reception and luncheon on Friday, May 6 from noon to 2:30 p.m. in Behrakis Grand Hall.
  • Class of 1991 graduates, let's go back to your graduation year: Drexel turned 100 years old, students made history with the world's largest ice cream sandwich in the Quad and you graduated together in the Civic Center and became Drexel alumni. Join us as we toast to 25-years gone by at your Silver Dragon Reunion during Alumni Weekend on Saturday, May 7 from 4 to 6 p.m. in Bossone Research Center Lobby.

Whether celebrating your graduation year or just wanting to celebrate, participate in exciting events for all, like the new Drexel Beer Garden, featuring beer from Flying Fish and a live band; Drexel After Dark; Cocktails and Creatures at the Academy of Natural Sciences and Drexel Fest, or check connect with alumni of the College of Nursing and Health Professions at one of our College-specific events listed below.
